Collin Garrity grew up in Belgium and Germany amid European art and architecture that would later inspire his own life\u2019s calling: woodworking.

It was at Warren Wilson College, a private liberal arts school near Asheville, North Carolina, that Garrity fell in love with the art and function of woodworking. \u201cOne day, I wandered into the wood shop with a guitar I wanted to fix up,\u201d he recalls. \u201cThen I started spending all my time there, building and fixing instruments for the school. I would be in the wood shop until 3 a.m.\u201d

Garrity, pleasantly surprised that he could get paid to learn the craft through a school work-study program, decided to turn woodworking into a career. \u201cI got a lathe [wood-shaping machine] and, step by step, started making all my tools,\u201d he says. Garrity soaked in everything he could about the skill from fellow students and woodworking veterans.

\"garritty_03.JPG\"

Through trial and error, he began crafting his own pieces, from home goods to kitchen items, such as tables, bowls, cutting boards and serving trays. \u201cI like letting the wood speak for itself, and I\u2019m just shaping it,\u201d he says, adding that he aims for his pieces to be both beautiful and functional.

The handmade wooden creations soon started to sell even more quickly than Garrity anticipated. So, in 2011, he began his own woodworking business, going through several names before simply settling on his own moniker, Collin Garrity Woodworking.

Garrity moved to St. Louis three years ago with his beloved woodworking business in tow. He worked out of a one-car garage until a recent Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign raised enough funds for the purchase of a 3,000-square-foot, two-story historic building near the Benton Park neighborhood of St. Louis.

The building\u2019s architecture, as well as the neighborhood\u2019s tightknit artistic community, is inspiring Garrity to get even more creative with his woodworking. \u201cSt. Louis has been incredibly welcoming,\u201d he says. \u201cIt\u2019s a small community for creative folks, and everyone wants to work with everyone else. Here, if you\u2019re passionate about what you\u2019re doing, people will find you.\u201d

Garrity also continues to be inspired by architecture, from shaker-style to art nouveau, and fine art, from minimalism to surrealism. \u201cI turn to painters, illustrators and architects [for inspiration],\u201d he says, adding that art and design books line the walls of his new workspace.

Today, Garrity\u2019s line of wares has expanded to coffee and folding dining-room tables, stools, bowls, cutting boards, serving trays, rolling pins, napkin rings and butter spreaders, made from walnut, cherry, maple and white oak that he finds at local lumber stores. \u201cThe [woods] are all so heavy and solid,\u201d he says. \u201cThey are really beautiful woods that stand up to time, getting dinged and getting wet.\u201d

\"garritty_05.JPG\"

The minimalist, modern folding dining tables are a top-seller, created by using a large slab of wood for the tabletop and folding legs, convenient for easy shipping or storage. Additional Garrity table designs can be seen at Sump Coffee near Benton Park, while Garrity\u2019s walnut bowls are used at Vicia restaurant in the Central West End. \u201cThe dark walnut really frames out the food well,\u201d he says.

Some of the woodworker\u2019s most unique pieces are a French-style rolling pin, which is made in one solid piece; a Scandinavian-inspired cherry wood butter spreader; and a beefy, butcher-block-inspired cutting board with handles, designed with feedback from a local chef.

It takes just a few minutes for Garrity to hand-cut his kitchen accessories, reaching a total of 20 to 30 per day, then several additional days to layer on different coats of finish. After Garrity completes the pieces, any extra wood is donated to Perennial, a local nonprofit workshop and store that offers woodworking and art classes.

Items from the Collin Garrity Woodworking line can be found at multiple local home-goods stores, including Urban Matter in South City, Twigs & Moss in Clayton, Mesa Home on Cherokee Street and Lemon Gem Kitchen Goods in The Grove, as well as in boutiques across the region, such as Fern & Sycamore in Washington, Missouri, and Philomena + Ruth in Waterloo, Illinois.

Taking inspiration from art and fellow artists, Garrity also has delved into working on new pieces, such as statement pendant lights and expansive wooden canvases that may accent his studio someday. \u201cI want to build a tall, thin canvas and have my friend [painter] Erik Riley of Brooklyn paint a ladder on it,\u201d he says. \u201cI like things that recontextualize everyday things and make common things into something more interesting.\u201d The whimsical woodworker also envisions building a grand, art nouveau wooden staircase, with shaker-style shelves on either side, as the future focal point of his studio.

With Garrity\u2019s artistic eye for design and passion for woodworking, it\u2019s easy to wonder what he\u2019ll make next. \u201cI love to interact with wood,\u201d he says. \u201cI look forward to working on any piece that stretches me to the limit of what I can do.\u201d

When Vicki Dreste\u2019s clients of more than 16 years decided they wanted to build a new custom home in Town and Country, they brought Dreste on to help with design in the early stages.

\u201cThey were very knowledgeable and did the layout themselves,\u201d she said. \u201cI helped them with functionality of particular spaces.\u201d

One of these was the dining room, which sits just to the left of the front door.

\u201cNot only did it need to function properly as a dining room, but it\u2019s also there to make a statement for the house when you walk in,\u201d Dreste says.

The backs of the chairs add a bright pop of color to the space. Dreste and her clients decided on a cut velvet fabric with pink highlights; then they went with a neutral linen for the rest of the chair covering. Dreste notes that since it\u2019s the least-trafficked part of a chair, the back is a great place to display delicate designs.

The room\u2019s other colorful aspect is the buffet table against the wall, which has a watery blue-green color that carries throughout the house.

\u201cWe paid a lot of attention to our color palette in this home,\u201d Dreste says.

_ TRELLIS IN SN.jpg

When Donna Potter was mothering a household filled with four young kids and two dogs, she needed a safe way to protect every member of her family, as well as her luxuriously renovated 19th-century Victorian home.

As a result, the Edwardsville, Illinois, mother set out on a search for functional \u2013 and attractive \u2013 baby and pet gates, but she came up empty-handed. Although the roadblock was frustrating, it sparked an idea. \u201cI designed a see-through gate and had my builder construct it,\u201d Potter says. \u201cI fell in love with the idea.\u201d

In 2015, Potter brought her idea, Fusion Gates, to market. The company offers safe \u2013 and aesthetically pleasing \u2013 baby and pet gates with interchangeable screens to complement even the most upscale home d\u00e9cor. \u201cThe gates are meant to enhance your space, like a work of art in your home,\u201d Potter says.

The gates themselves, which are made of lightweight aluminum and scratch-resistant polycarbonate materials, come in black, white, pearl and satin nickel. Fusion Gates\u2019 truly unique feature is its interchangeable screen designs, which are inspired by trends in luxury stores, high-end hotels, historic to modern architecture, and stunning nature scenes. Among the most popular designs are Willow Branch, Trellis and Modern Lines, a multicolored modern vertical-line pattern.

Fusion Gates also offers complimentary consultations and, for an additional fee, custom screen designs. \u201cOne dog hotel wanted its logo on [the screen], another customer wanted a photo of their dog on it, and some customers want a different color of one of our designs,\u201d Potter says.

The gates are meant to complement the character of your home, according to her. \u201cIt\u2019s more of a home accessory,\u201d she says. \u201cWe call it a portal to harmonious living.\u201d That\u2019s because design can affect your feelings, Potter notes, adding: \u201cOne thing we feel really strongly about is mental wellness. I would feel terrible looking at the black-barred gates in my house. It was sending this subliminal message that I was trapped.\u201d Rather than a sign to \u201ckeep out\u201d or \u201cbeware,\u201d Potter wants Fusion Gates to be inviting and welcoming. \u201cIt\u2019s more of something you enter, not something that halts you; [the gates] promote positivity in your house,\u201d she says.

The gates, which have an easy-to-install instruction manual at fusiongates.com, also feature dual-mounting capabilities for either a pressure-mount or hardware installation into your entryway. The manual likewise details how to change the screen in the gate\u2019s patented interchangeable art screen system.

Although the gates are currently sold out, new colors, designs and sizes will be available this fall through fusiongates.com. Customers can visit the site now to take advantage of a \u201csecret sale\u201d offered to customers who preorder the gates. Preorders begin in September, and gates will arrive in early October, Potter notes. She also hopes to make Fusion Gates available through Houzz, Amazon and other online retailers.

One reason the company had a recent sales boost was an April audition for ABC\u2019s Shark Tank, Potter says. Fusion Gates didn\u2019t make it onto a taping of the popular entrepreneurship show, but it did receive a bump in sales and support on social media from residents across the St. Louis area.

And her customers love Fusion Gates, Potter says. She recalls one client calling the gates unique and beautiful, all while still keeping her large-breed dogs away from her expensive furniture and serving as a high-quality piece of art in her home. Potter adds that another client, who has a granddaughter and dogs, says the gates are easy to use and make her life stress-free. \u201cWe have a great relationship with our customers,\u201d Potter says, adding that clients often send her photos of their kids and pets with the gates.

Potter wants to make sure customers know they\u2019re a part of the company, too. \u201cWe encourage people to connect with us on social media to suggest [gate screen] designs and get in on our secret sale,\u201d she says. \u201cWe are obsessed with our product and with our customer!\u201d

\u2018Enchantment\u2019 lily

The magnificent border of midcentury hybrid lilies along the back of my grandmother\u2019s rock garden in New Hampshire endlessly delighted me as a child.

Those luxurious flowers\u2019 sheer beauty, brilliant color and classic form enchanted me. So when I subsequently planted the garden at my first home, the \u2018Black Dragon\u2019 lily served as the centerpiece of my patio border. Thereafter, I\u2019d park my lawn chair under the towering floral spires and become intoxicated by their fabulous fragrance; the perfect pleasure conveyed by this genus made me a lifelong lily lover.

Most if not all of those lilies have a connection. They resulted from the prodigious breeding efforts of Dutch-born plantsman Jan de Graaff, considered by many to be the father of the modern garden lily. In his 1989 New York Times obituary, writer Patti Hagan was quoted as saying, \u201cBy dint of rigorous mass hybridization, de Graaff managed to ruin the lily\u2019s reputation as an impossible, unobliging garden aristocrat and made of the lily a good, easy-growing garden plant.\u201d He did this by making wide crosses between many species from all over the world, selecting the best from millions of seedlings for out-facing flowers, vigor and hardiness. His first breakthrough cultivar, \u2018Enchantment,\u2019 remains popular today.

Where to See Lilies

The Missouri Botanical Garden sports a wonderful collection of lilies concentrated in the bulb borders near the Climatron. Blooming from early June into July, all varieties are labeled, making it easy for visitors to choose selections for their own gardens. Bellefontaine Cemetery, at 4947 W. Florissant Ave., also displays mass plantings of cultivated lilies. Those wishing to view native species, meanwhile, should visit the Whitmire Wildflower Garden at the Shaw Nature Reserve in Gray Summit, Missouri.

The most spectacular lily viewing this year should come at the North American Lily Society\u2019s 70th annual International Lily Show & Symposium, held in St. Louis from June 28 through July 2. Show chairman Lynn Slackman says participants bring spectacular cut specimens from across the northern United States and Canada. Attendees should look for hot new interdivisional hybrids like \u2018Lankon\u2019 and \u2018Fusion,\u2019 with specimens from each of the eight classic lily divisions and species groups. The free, open-to-the-public show will take place in the Versailles Ballroom at the Sheraton Westport Chalet Hotel St. Louis. To learn more or to register for the symposium, visit nals2017.lilies.org.

Supersize Your Lilies

In a landscape, lilies are most effective when massed. Home gardeners should order early for the best selection and plant fresh bulbs as soon as they arrive in the fall. Establish a large clump from the beginning by planting five or more bulbs of the same variety close together. Lilies love rich, loose soil. To create the ideal bed, therefore, dig a bushel-basket-size hole, about 2 feet wide and 18 inches deep. Backfill the hole with a foot of soil amended with compost, aged manure and ground bark. Stir in some bone meal. Then push the lily bulbs \u2013 roots down \u2013 into the soft soil.

I plant in a loose \u201cW\u201d to give a natural effect, but the exact arrangement matters little as long as about 10 inches separate the bulbs. Also, the lilies should be about 8 inches below final grade. Fill the hole and water well. Fertilize lightly (one tablespoon per plant) with 5-10-10 now, at spring emergence and at the beginning of flower bud set.

This stunning Indiana limestone estate in the Central West End impresses at first sight. Step inside to be floored even more. The historic Richardson Romanesque-style home was built in 1897 for G. Warren Brown, founder of Brown Shoe Co. Classic design fills the halls, from the rosewood wainscot and Italian mosaic floor in the entry foyer to the art-glass skylight of the incredible solarium. Converse in the immaculate rosewood-paneled living room, next to the carved French limestone fireplace. Prepare a banquet with use of the kitchen, featuring a butler\u2019s pantry, custom cabinetry and a breakfast room.

In the last five-plus years, the real estate industry has witnessed a major transformation within its structure through the act of becoming more digital and mobile. Laura McCarthy Real Estate has redesigned and refurbished its Clayton office from the ground up in order to evolve with the industry. This strategic remodel allows agents to be more collaborative and brings technology to the forefront of the business. A spacious, open work space houses computers at each seat, large work tables and televisions throughout, with a lounge area, all of which serves to launch Laura McCarthy agents and the clients they serve into the future of real estate.

With a lack of property on the market and good houses selling fast, the ability to easily share and receive information creates opportunities. The agency is thrilled to start this new era of collaboration, as it looks forward to the opportunity of growth for agents to provide for clients. \u201cWe are large enough to stay progressive \u2026 and small enough to personalize the service delivery to each client,\u201d a spokesperson for the company says . Laura McCarthy maintains an excellent marketing program, plus internal closing and relocation departments. It utilizes market statistics and research as integral components in its planning and marketing strategies. Laura McCarthy is poised to continue leading in the industry because of its unique understanding that, in order to grow and thrive in this fast-paced, information-driven world, real estate companies need to embrace and lead change.

Ken Callahan possesses a passion for making people\u2019s dream homes become reality.

The St. Louis native, who has more than 20 years of experience in local construction, gained a breadth of hands-on industry expertise as a carpenter and foreman during the first decade of his career. When he opted to strike out on his own with BoKal Construction in 2005, Callahan hit the ground running, implementing his expertise into everything from home remodeling to commercial projects. The commercial side of the business soon took off, with the company completing local businesses, such as Sterling Bank in Clayton, as well as multifamily residential complexes like a luxury apartment building, The Standard, in midtown St. Louis.

All the while, Callahan continued his passion project on the side \u2013 bringing old houses back to life. And when he decided to build his own custom home in Town and Country, the second large custom home he had built for himself, he quickly started to receive requests to construct unique houses for friends.

Today, about 30 percent of BoKal\u2019s projects are commercial, as the company focuses 70 percent of its time on custom residential work. BoKal specializes in building dream homes for clients across St. Louis, from 3,000 to 9,000 square feet, modern to rustic, traditional to eclectic houses in Ladue, Town and Country, Kirkwood, Ballwin and beyond. \u201cI like to work with a customer who wants that little something special to [give] their home that unique twist,\u201d Callahan notes.

Callahan works closely with each client to design and construct his or her ideal home. The custom design process \u2013 which can take anywhere from a week to multiple months, depending on the client\u2019s wants and needs \u2013 begins with a meeting to discuss ideas and draw up rough sketches of the vision for the house, as well as consider recommendations for architects who will complete the final blueprints. \u201cOne of the first questions I ask is, \u2018What\u2019s your vision? Can you paint me the picture of what you want for your home and the vibe of [each] room?\u2019\u201d Callahan says, adding that clients often bring magazine or online photos of houses they love as a starting point. \u201cThen we really knuckle down and go for that vision.\u201d

With his hands-on approach to the design process, Callahan carefully and thoughtfully helps clients select every type of finish, flooring, lighting and paint color for the home. \u201cThere is not a lot of room for any kind of deviation from what the vision is,\u201d he says. \u201cIf a color is off or doesn\u2019t flow, we will repaint the whole house. We don\u2019t make sacrifices of our clients\u2019 wants or wishes for time and money.\u201d

BoKal also offers value engineering, in which the team dissects each part of the building process, from design to supplies, crews, engineering, utilities, permits and inspections, to achieve the best product for the best price. For instance, when bidding out your custom home, BoKal contracts with familiar subcontractors who can offer quality work at competitive prices. Callahan also says he keeps a lean, but experienced, construction staff, so he can pass along those savings to customers.

Although the construction process can last several months, Callahan says BoKal has been lauded by local neighborhoods for its efficiency. For example, BoKal recently completed a 6,000-square-foot custom home in Town and Country in about seven months.

Among BoKal\u2019s recent residential projects are modern stucco and cedar shake-shingle homes with upscale amenities in Ladue, such as wine cellars, cigar rooms, gyms and theaters with stadium-style seating. \u201cI just really like interesting custom projects,\u201d Callahan says. \u201cI want that house to be the head-turner as people drive by.\u201d

One such property, 12 Williamsburg Estates in Town and Country, boasts a modern stone-and-brick fa\u00e7ade with tiered roofing, as well as amenities including two stone fireplaces, vaulted wooden ceilings, a luxurious master suite with heated tile flooring, a marble walk-in shower and soaker tub, and an expansive back deck.

By applying his experience in both the residential and commercial industries, Callahan says he and his staff of seven have yet to come across a home-building obstacle they can\u2019t overcome. So whatever you can dream up for your custom home, Callahan says he\u2019s ready to rise to the challenge. \u201cWe will meet and exceed expectations to bring their dream home to life,\u201d he concludes.

For Jill Malley, the choice to start a career in real estate started when she placed a bet on herself. When an unexpected opportunity arose, she tried her luck. \u201cIt happened by chance \u2026 I met Kathy Beilein [the president of Laura McCarthy] at an early-childhood program in Clayton,\u201d she describes. \u201cSo I took that [gamble] on myself.\u201d

As three decades with one agency proves, Malley won big. \u201cI made an excellent choice in my career path, especially with the company I affiliated with,\u201d she says. Over the course of her 32-year career, she has learned how to thrive while staying true to her own work ethic.

\u201cI hold high standards for myself \u2013 and for others I meet throughout this process,\u201d Malley says. She explains which traits are most important in this profession, holding herself as accountable as she does any other professional. \u201cIntegrity, professionalism, ethics. I make sure I do the best I can while following the rules.\u201d

When asked about the most challenging aspect of working in the housing industry, Malley answers, \u201cThe competition. Making sure clients are satisfied and gratified with the end results I achieve.\u201d Fortunately, she handles each new situation with the same confidence and conviction that set her down this path of success.

A closer examination reveals that luck has very little to do with Malley\u2019s accomplishments, though. It is passion that drives her \u2013 and keeps her at the top of her game. \u201cThe problem-solving, coordination \u2026 helping buyers and sellers through this transition \u2013 oh, I love it!\u201d she exclaims.

With a strong moral fiber and a long-standing record of her capabilities as an agent, perhaps the best bet you can make when considering whether to buy or sell your home is on Malley herself. \u201cI am confident in what I can do to achieve total satisfaction for my clients,\u201d she says.

Whether they\u2019re playing catch with their kids or fetch with their pets, Clean Air Lawn Care clients are breathing easier knowing environmentally friendly, child- and pet-safe practices are being used to maintain their yards this summer.

Clean Air Lawn Care, the St. Louis franchise of the nationwide chain of the same name, was launched this spring by owner Craig Martin. The local lawn care company offers a full range of sustainable services, from organic lawn treatments and solar-powered mowing to yard cleanup. The company uses solar-powered equipment charged through the solar panels mounted atop the company vehicle that visits clients\u2019 homes, which helps to reduce local air, noise and water pollution.

The green-friendly business, which also includes Martin\u2019s wife, Katie Felts-Martin, takes a unique approach to lawn maintenance, considering the health of your yard, family, pets, neighbors and the local environment when caring for every blade of grass. The company offers weekly, as well as one-time, services. For clients who opt for long-term maintenance, Clean Air visits their yard every week to provide sustainable lawn care, including mowing and trimming with solar-powered equipment. \u201cWe mow the grass at a taller height of 3 inches because it\u2019s healthier on the grass root system, easier on the equipment, and it looks better,\u201d Martin says. \u201cAnd we mulch in grass clippings and leaves, putting all that nitrogen right back into the soil.\u201d The nitrogen nourishes the turf, and the company\u2019s strategy of cutting off just an inch of grass with each weekly mow allows lawns to grow greener and lusher, with less room for weeds and more space on each blade to bring in the sun and oxygen your yard needs to grow fuller, Martin explains.

Every five to six weeks from spring through fall, Clean Air returns to each client\u2019s yard to apply a low volume of organic fertilizer, a granular product made with plant-based ingredients such as alfalfa, molasses and kelp. The organic treatments feed the grass root system for healthier growth, as well as eliminate chemical runoff into local waterways \u2013 a pollution issue caused by traditional lawn fertilizers. \u201cBy going chemical-free with us, you\u2019re not bringing [toxins] into your house, and you don\u2019t have to worry about what you and your kids and pets are touching [in the yard],\u201d Martin notes.

In addition to preventing water pollution, Clean Air\u2019s equipment reduces noise and air pollution. The company\u2019s solar mowers are 50 percent quieter than their traditional gas-powered counterparts, Martin says. \u201cIt\u2019s great for homeowners and their neighbors. We will be working on a yard, and the homeowners might not even know we\u2019re here.\u201d Additionally, the solar mowers don\u2019t release toxic emissions into the environment, while Environmental Protection Agency studies have shown that small-engine mowers and trimmers account for 5 to 10 percent of annual air pollution, including chemicals such as nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide and unspent fuel emitted at an hourly rate equivalent to the emissions of your sport utility vehicle after it travels several thousand miles.

Clean Air can service your yard year-round, including spring and fall yard cleanup, blowing and mulching leaves, and flower-bed weeding, as well as overseeding (to fill in any thin or bare spots in your lawn) and core aeration (to allow oxygen, water and other nutrients to reach your lawn\u2019s root system, encouraging growth and proper drainage). \u201cWe take our time on each property; we want to make sure your lawn looks awesome every week,\u201d Martin notes, adding that his business goes the extra mile to put on finishing touches, including trimming vertical edges on the lawn, blowing grass clippings from sidewalks and driveways, and pulling any weeds that may pop up to prevent them from spreading until he returns the next week.

Fuller, healthier lawns benefit Clean Air\u2019s clients, who increasingly use their yards to expand their living spaces and reflect their lifestyles, Martin explains. When St. Louisans pull into their driveways after long days at work or play, they see lush, green lawns maintained by Clean Air Lawn Care, he says, adding, \u201cPeople take pride in their lawn, and we take pride in it, too.\u201d
